About Elvia Taylor

Elvia Taylor has been involved in language education as a teachers, consultant, advocate, entrepreneur, and a mother since 1984. In 2001, Elvia was working in corporate America when she recognized that there were people who wanted to learn English or Spanish. Elvia spoke both languages perfectly and so she decided to start her own business. Using her dining room table and a guest room that she converted into a classroom, Elvia opened her home to students every evening and the business took off!

Today, Elvia has a successful preschool in the Houston-Rice Village area and has sold two franchises focusing on language classes for adults. Her preschool in Houston is recognized as one of the top preschools in the area and there is a waiting list for children who are eager to learn a second language.

Elvia has grown her business from a $10 investment in 2001 to over 2 million dollars in sales a year. Elvia has taken the idea of creating a superior preschool for children from a concept, to inception, to a full-scale operation. Elvia is now helping others start their own businesses without having to invest too much, as well as putting together her lessons for worldwide use.
